Porcelain Veneers

 

Porcelain veneers are custom made thin laminates that are bonded to the front of the natural tooth. Porcelain veneers are usually chosen because of their exceptional aesthetics and because they involve much less tooth reduction compared to crowns. Being glass-like is a great advantage over other types of cosmetic dental bonding because of translucency. When bonded onto a tooth’s surface they mimic the light handling characteristics of the enamel beneath. This translucency provides a sense of depth, and thus a very life-like appearance. Being glass-like also means an extremely smooth and impervious surface that will not pick up permanent stains.

 

Skillfully designed veneers can improve many types of compromises in the smile, including chipped or worn teeth, misalignment, close spaces and mask discolouration. Although porcelain is inherently brittle, when it is firmly bonded to a sturdy substructure like tooth enamel it becomes very strong and durable.
